Non-francophones in Quebec are convinced that the Parti Québécois are doing whatever they can do drive them out of the province, acording to a new survey.
The survey, done by Ekos Research for the CBC, suggests 46 per cent of Quebecers believe the PQ is actively working to discourage non-francophones from staying, while 37 per cent didn't believe that.
Among anglophones and allophones, those figures whoot up dramatically — 81 per cent of anglophones and 78 per cent of allophones agree with that statement.
Among francophones, only 37 per cent agree with that assessment, while 43 per cent disagree.
It's another component of the poll released last week that suggested half of non-francophone Quebecers were thinking of leaving the province within the next year.
While premier Pauline Marois last week touted the "great respect" she had for the anglophone community, Liberal Leader Philippe Couillard on Monday denounced the party for its "deplorable" approach to anglo concerns.
"[The PQ is] totally indifferent to how our fellow English-speaking Quebecers feel about the situation." Couillard told reporters on Monday. "There is no preoccupation for how our English-speaking fellow Quebecers — I insist on that term — view the current policies and the direction that is being taken by the PQ."
